I am a big fan of Satchel's, Piesanos, and Pomodoro's Pizza. Still, V Pizza in downtown has the best pizza in the city, hands down. Their ingredients are literally flown in from Italy and you can taste the difference. You cannot beat this place for...More

V Pizza specializes in the art of traditional Napoletana pizza making. What are Napoletana pizzas? A rare class of artisan pizza typically made exclusively in Italy. Pizza lovers, rejoice! In addition to pizza, wings, calzones, salads, and Italian desserts, this location has the younger sister of our award winning craft cocktail bar, Sidecar, nestled inside the dining room!
